ISIS Defeated in Raqqa

October 18, 2017 by Janelle P in Stories of Persecution

In July, we joyful reported to you of Mosul’s liberation from ISIS control, and now we echo that with the news of “major military operations” in Raqqa ending and a declaration of liberation expected soon.

It is apparent that ISIS’ reign is declining—praise God!

Raqqa became the de facto capital for ISIS following a few territorial gains in 2014. This is where they carried out public beheadings and crucifixions. It was a base to launch terror attacks around the world.

Watch CNN’s drone footage of the devastation to Raqqa.


This victory came after SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) efforts to retake the city, which began in June. ISIS fighters have been cleared from the area. The group’s black flag was hauled from Raqqa’s stadium, their last hideout, on Tuesday.
